Course Date: February 25, 2021
Course Time: 5pm – 6pm
Networking: 6pm - 6:30pm (optional)          


  • Melissa Falica, Account Manager, SGS North America Inc.
  • Caitlin Brice, M.S., General Manager – Orlando and Dayton, SGS North America Inc.

Moderator: Ken Haduch, LSRP, Environmental Resources Management (ERM)

Description: The goal of this informative technical presentation is to follow the life of a sample: from its collection by an environmental professional, transport to the lab, its analysis, and eventual disposal. Having a strong understanding of the way a laboratory processes a sample will assist the environmental professional in placing a sample bottle order, preparing the chain of custody/sample labeling, interacting with the laboratory, and eventually obtaining the data you need for your project.

This training will focus on the importance of a Chain of Custody (COC) and what happens to a sample once it enters the possession of the laboratory. Students of this course will strengthen their understanding of the “whats, whys, and hows” of the laboratory processes.

Registration Fee: Free
